Unwelcome: Check out release date, cast and plot


Unwanted is heading to cinemas next year from now and follows a couple who get away from their urban life for a more peaceful one in rural Ireland, yet things really don’t work out as expected!

The film is helmed by Jon Wright and is based on an original screenplay by Mark Stay, with a great Irish cast attached to the project including Derry Girls legend Jamie-Lee O’Donnell.

In an interaction with Empire, Jon Wright said: “A lot of this film is about a very urban, liberal, progressive couple getting back in touch with their primal, animal selves — this bestial side again.

“The woods at the bottom of the garden, that’s where Mother Nature lives, metaphorically. It’s like they’re going back to their ancestors in a way. And they’re certainly going back in time in a sense, going back to a place that’s much less built up and much wilder than where they start the film.”

Here’s everything we know so far about Unwelcome ahead of its release.

Unwelcome plot

Based on an Irish superstition, an expecting couple escapes the hustle and bustle of the city and settles in the tranquil scenery of rural Ireland. However, luring at the foot of their garden is an old wood which holds mysterious beings called Redcaps – a dangerous breed of goblin who are known for soaking their caps into their victim’s blood. . The heavily pregnant Maya is before long targeted by the trolls in the wake of forgetting to feed them – in this way, when the Redcaps come out when called to help souls in need of rescue, there is always a price to pay for their aid. What will that price be?
